I’m going to talk about Ferguson, MO, for a second.
Don’t worry, I’ll be quick.
First they came for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Communist.
Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up,
because I wasn’t a Jew.
Then they [...]
So Starbucks has said that they would like for gun owners to NOT carry in stores, any more. This is following one of the stupidest fights I’ve seen people get into in the 6-ish years I’ve been a part of the “gun owner” demographic.
From The Practical Tactical Podcast:
One internet poster said: “I never [...]
I don’t “do” 9/11 posts.
I think I’ve done a couple of posts on that day in the years since I’ve had my blog, and people have asked where I was when it happened, and at this point, it doesn’t matter, because I wasn’t in NYC, I didn’t know anyone in the towers, on the [...]
Dear [alma mater] Career Services, specifically C. R. [edited from original Facebook post, because this is public - I'm airing a grievance, not trying to get someone fired]:
Sending an email entitled “Congratulations Graduate! Eleven Reasons Why I Will Never Hire You.” and introducing that as an article/discussion point in the forum is a terrible [...]
First of all, I would like to say that I’m just as pissed as many of my friends that this happened, that I would like to see the living brother tortured for the rest of his days for what he took part in. My anger is real, it’s strong, and it’s not going away anytime [...]

Last night I was down in the city with my fiance and his mother and stepdad, who are visiting [...]
…every woman who crosses the state line could be pregnant at any time, without knowing it. Seriously…think about it. If she has sex, no matter where she is in her cycle, she’s just risked having a 2-week-old fetus (by the definition of this law) MAGICALLY IMPLANTED into her uterus.
What is it with [...]
Jezebel pretty much covers the snark portion of this situation, so I’ll leave that to them.
You guys want to know why I’m not talking about politics, anywhere?
THIS IS WHY.
BECAUSE EVERYONE IS A MORON IN AN ELECTION YEAR, MORE SO THAN USUAL.
Have you ever heard of “magical thinking”? It’s very [...]
I started this blog over on Blogger/Blogspot because of the Virginia Tech shooting. At the time, I was poring over articles, skimming some, thoroughly reading others, and I couldn’t get enough information. It was like this compulsion to have all of the answers possible.
Now, in Aurora, CO, there are 12 families who’ve lost loved [...]
(I posted this on Facebook just now, and I know there are folks who read here who aren’t on my FB who might have something to add.)
***Okay, so in comments on FB, someone asked me where I got this idea. I’ve gotten it EVERYWHERE. The places that aren’t outright saying this can’t agree on [...]
